Hughes Electrical builds in-store Smart Home

Hughes Electrical has invested £20,000 in building a Smart Home in its branch on Felixstowe Road in Ipswich, giving customers the opportunity to see how the latest technology can bring convenience and efficiency to their day-to-day lives.

The home has a garden, kitchen, living room, dining room and bedroom showcasing the latest electricals, heating and security systems.

It features a wide range of appliances, all of which can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet, remote or a light switch.

“We know people are confused about the latest technology so we wanted to show them how easy and simple it can be to use and also how it can save them money,” said Ashley Shorey-Mills, Hughes Smart Home manager (pictured).

“You really need to try it and see it in action for yourself to appreciate the benefits it can bring. Therefore, we took the decision to build our very own mini Smart Home.”

Along with controllable appliances, consumer electronics and heating, visitors to the Smart Home will also see how they can easily control window blinds, door entry, security cameras, outdoor lighting and speakers in the garden.

“Making the move to a Smart Home is not all or nothing,” said Shorey-Mills. “You can do it appliance by appliance, adding more when you want to and start things with a budget of just a couple of thousand pounds.

“By making an appointment to come along to our Smart Home, people will be able to see for themselves that technology is not scary or difficult to use but can have a very positive effect on their lifestyle.”
